NDO/VNA – Close to 200 trucks carrying goods were cleared to cross the border as of 1 pm on January 10, after China’s Guangxi province officially resumed customs clearance at border gates and border crossings in its Dongxing city bordering Mong Cai city of Vietnam’s Quang Ninh province, including bridges Bac Luan 1 and Bac Luan 2, and pontoon bridge Km 3 4.
The resumption came after a hiatus of nearly 20 days, according to the Mong Cai customs sub-department. Of the trucks, 44 transported fresh seafood for export and 51 served the import of different types of products, with most of the remaining trucks being those trapped during the hiatus.
The sub-department said as of 1pm, there were more than 1,300 trucks, mostly transporting frozen and fresh seafood and fresh fruit, left to be cleared.
The clearance duration for each truck is between 5 and 10 minutes in line with strict pandemic prevention and control measures, it informed.
Previously, to review and strengthen COVID-19 prevention and control measures, Guangxi temporarily suspended customs clearance at border gates in Dongxing city from December 21, 2021. These freshly reopened pairs of border gates and border crossings are very important for imports and exports of both sides.
